The lounge is often the most used room in the house. It’s where guests are invited to relax, and families meet at the end of a long day. The lounge is where a lot of family life unfolds and where a lot of family time at home is spent. For this reason, you need to think very carefully about the flooring in your lounge. If you have been wondering if you should have LVT flooring in your lounge, then this is the blog post for you.

What is LVT?

LVT flooring, also known as Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring, is becoming increasingly popular due to being waterproof, durable and having aesthetic appeal. But let’s look a little closer at why LVT flooring could be the perfect option for your busy family lounge.

Form and function

One of the great things about LVT flooring for your lounge is that it combines both form and function. For example, there is a wear layer to LVT flooring. This is a transparent layer that offers a shield for your flooring against scratches, spills and scuffs. In turn, this helps to preserve the look and beauty of the floor. This means you don’t need to worry too much about dogs’ claws or spillages of wine and tea. You know your floor is protected.

There is also a design layer to the flooring. This is the layer that serves as the aesthetic part of the floor and enables you to choose a flooring type that suits your personality and lounge style. You can choose from wood look or stone effects if you would like. This is high-quality flooring that looks incredible and is available in a wide range of styles, colours and patterns.

Your LVT flooring will also have a core layer. This core layer is often made up of a selection of composed materials. These will include either a rigid core or an SPC (Stone polymer composite). Each of these materials will contribute towards the stability and durability of your floor. This core layer is important because this is what will help to keep your floor in great condition for years to come.

The final layer of your Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring that is often forgotten about is the backing layer. This is the layer that provides the insulation in the flooring. It also helps with sound dampening. The backing layer helps to ensure that you have a warm and comfortable room that doesn’t echo sound around it.

Designed with the busiest household in mind

The biggest benefit of LVT flooring for your lounge is its protection against foot traffic. Whether you have kids running around, social gatherings with friends and neighbours, or teenagers scuffing across the floor – your floor is protected. It has been designed to withstand consistent foot traffic in the busiest of households, without showing signs of wear.
